P is for…
Clover Point is part of the Dallas Road/Beacon Park landmarks I’ve already talked about in this Challenge. It’s also part of a larger stretch of land called Clover Point Park, which includes an off-leash dog park, lots of benches looking out at the incredible views, and lots of places to access the beach. You can read more about the history of Clover Point at the Beacon Hill Park History site (http://www.beaconhillparkhistory.org/contents/appendix_C.htm). It has a much more interesting history than I thought!
If you keep walking past Clover Point, you will be strolling along the sea wall, and across the street from Ross Bay Cemetery (to be featured soon!)
There is always something going on at Clover Point – ship watching, beach walking, surf sailing, hang gliding, kite flying, sail boating, Shakespeare in the Park, festivals of all kinds, even movie and TV show filming. I love walking or running down that way, especially on a sunny day!
